Finally.... After a lot of head banging, mind rackling, keyboard kicking ... we finally managed to crack the code. We got to know that there was actually no problem with the code. The problem was the wrong version of the app server we were using (What a shame!). We eventually completed our assignment on time. Voila!

Now since Shyam has mischieviously tagged me (I will kill him for this!) I shall surely go on to tell some weird things about myself. So here it goes...

1) Since Abhishek is such a common name, I never used to be known by this name. Neither in school, home or college. At home, my friends called me Roni. In school, I was called Pseudo. And in college, I was known as Shaora. Now don't ask me why I was named that way (Its got some grave background!!) but the name Shaora was so popular in my batch that many people actually never knew my actual name.

2) Moreover, the name which my parents had given me was not Abhishek. It was actually Avishek. My parents had to get it changed when I joined school.

3) I am a very sober person (you can argue about that!) but when I pass out after a long booze party, I can do some very strange things. Some of these blackout experiences have been at IIT KGP where once we friends actually abused a group. And in the freshers party at Richardson Hall I almost ... leave it!

I think this is enough for now. I shall continue sometime later, if possible.
Meanwhile, I need to get back to my work. These new technologies in my project are already killing me a lot. My tech lead said that these were meant to simplify the task of a Developer but using them has been such a headache I don't know when they will actually simplify my task and if possible, my life.

Why the hell doesn't it run ?

Its been 2 days and about 9 hours but I still haven't been able to get this damn application to work on my system. Every time I compile and execute it it gives me this same *ing 404 error.
Actually the Technological Lead (TL) of our project gave us the introduction to the technological stack yesterday in our first technical ramp up meeting. So we 8 freshers in the team got to hear some cool but till now unknown terms like Struts 2, Spring, iLog etc. Now all these sound very hi-fi but unfortunately, we got to learn them all. So the TL gave us a simple task. To create a sort of a form using Struts 2 framework. And we are to know the framework and all about it too.
So from last evening we set about "Learning Struts 2". First, we checked out our most faithful pal in this area - Google. Got some links and started reading. Its then that we got the first shock. Most of the stuff was obviously going tangential. I stayed up till 8:15 in the night but to no avail. So I took some pdfs and printouts to read at home.
But as u all know, when at home who wants to study. As usual, I spent the time sleeping. No studies. So from today morning, we team members have been racking our brains to get something working but success has lured us till now. The TL had said that he would make us wait till 9 in the night but would make sure that each one of us executed that bit of code on his/her own machines. Lets hope we manage to do that before the timeline set.
Hey, I think I have wasted a lot of time writing this post and I better get done to cracking some code or else I may have to stay up for the night. :-)
